My crazy life

I've never set out to portray a perfect little life here on this blog.  I think I've been pretty open and honest about our struggles, or at least the ones I want to share with the world.  I've seen a lot of articles pop up lately about how life appears perfect on facebook and instagram and pinterest, but we are only seeing the pretty versions of what real life looks life.  That full time working, homeschooling, housekeeping, laundry doing mom on facebook/instagram/pinterest isn't showing you the parts of her life that are falling apart.  Living in this time of social media loving and sharing is tough.  It can quickly make us feel terrible about ourselves or our family or our job... it goes on forever.  I promise, as often as I post, I will not try to sugar coat things.  I will try to be honest.  I will try to be real.  I will do my best to let you see my real life, not just the one I want you to see.  I may not post much, but when I do it will be honest.

OK, that's not why I'm here today.  Not sure where that rant came from.  I have a lot more other things I would love to rant about right now, but I think I'll wait for another day.  For now, I want to show you a picture of the kids from Easter.

Apparently Landon has had enough years of dressing up in a sweater and tie for Easter and decided that a sweatshirt was dressy enough this year.  At least he dressed the sweatshirt up with a pair of jeans.  :-)
Aren't they a cute bunch?  I'm so lucky I have the perfect family.  ;-)  Ha.  Just kidding.  Far from perfect over here!

He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.

Knock Knock

Follow up to yesterdays post... when we said the joke to Lila tonight she just smiled with her cutest little grin and said "I don't have that secret anymore".  (she meant joke, but I love "secret", it just shows she is three, and I can only say that for 2 more weeks!)

Apparently her new one is:
Knock Knock
Who's there?
Salt & Pepper
Salt & Pepper who?
Salt & Pepper on your elbow.

Another one with just as much humor:
Why did the chicken cross the road?
To smell stinky shoes.

Yup.  Just laugh!  Sometimes that's all you can do.

Owl who?

Nothing inspiring.  Maybe a little thought provoking.  Maybe.

Matt and I were talking about one of Lila's favorite jokes tonight when it dawned on me that I would probably not remember this silly joke in 5 or more years.  That made me sad.  So, I knew that I had to write it down.  And frame it.  Maybe.  Here it is for you to have a little laugh of your own!

Yikes, not sure I know what I'm doing here anymore.  Hopefully I can figure out how to post!  :)  There's so much going on over here that I just can't find time to keep this up regularly anymore.  But, I'm not going away either.  The blog will stay open!

What the last 3 months have included (the condensed version):
Christmas, New Years, Planet Fitness, school, yearbook, pictures, bible studies, games, cleaning, driving, visiting, working, organizing, selling, sledding, gaming, freezing, sweating, eliptacle, weights, doctor visits, reading, spelling, listening to stories, small group, friends... oh there's so much more.  It's been busy here.  Same story.  New post.

So anyway, the real reason I'm here...  just wanted to share this graphic I made!
